Seaside in Essaouira

We took a day trip to Essaouira, a small port town in Morocco. It was sunny and you could smell the salty sea air. Blue fishing boats were lined up on every dock, creating a picturesque scene. The ocean was fierce off the shore, rocky and windy. It's filled with restaurants serving up seafood. We meet a live lobster and 15min later it was our lunch. Essaouira is also a great place to shop for home decor. The cobblestone paths are lined with art and shops that have have beautiful berber and kilim rugs and pillows at a fraction of what they would cost in the U.S. We wandered through the medina and it was full of color, cute restaurants and handicrafts. On the way through we found an artistic and colorful Berber Rug we purchased to bring back home.
